Rev. Alex and Emma Williams were “showered” with many baby gifts following the worship service on Sunday. Baby Williams is due on March 5 and all the church family is excited about this new addition.
We have had a tremendous interest from children in the first annual Great KidMission! In order to keep the event affordable to families, we have set a goal to sell 65 more shares of stock in The Great KidMission. Stock shares sell for $20 each and include a seat at our Shareholder’s Dinner on Sunday, Feb. 26.
For more information about the exciting events that are going on in our children’s department, please click here.
Over 125 quilts and blankets were brought this Sunday to add to the hundreds that we have taken to CASA over the years. The quilt on the left was sent from a lady in California who heard about our mission. So many children are comforted by the talents that are shared through these gifts that continue to come.
The January Communion Offering for Meals on Wheels totaled $535.00. Volunteers from FUMCD who deliver meals are Joyce Hutson, Larry Groce, Mel and Carol McFarling, Barbara McGee, Weymond Dunn, and Bob Talbot.
First Methodist School Loves Bears
We brought our bears to school last week. We ate fun bear claw snacks, brought our bears to circle time, and learned about hibernation and so much more! Learning is BIG fun at FMS!
We have a few spots available (2 year old, 4 year old, & Kinder classes) for the 2016-2017 school year. If you know a family with young children, please tell them about our school so they can learn and grow with us!
